I talked with my psych nurse practitioner and we lowered my topamax from 100 to 50 yesterday. I took a little temazapam just to help me fall asleep cause I was punch drunk from being over tired...I swear I haven't slept thru the night in two months....and low and behold...I SLEPT 8 HOURS STRAIGHT!!!!!!!!!
I am so happy!
I am just a little nervous because I don't see the NP till next thursday....and I think I am going to have some issues on the lower dose. I mean the 100mg was perfect for me.....I felt very evened out. Lower and I was getting a little depressed.
Guess I will try to do natural stuff to help myself...exercise, eat right, and take my Omega 3's and B's...that really seems to help.
I am hoping that she adds a little something to the topamax that doesn't make me gain weight but will help to keep me on an even keel. I don't want to start getting all reactive again....I was that way my whole life and I hated it. It was like being a big raw open nerve.
Well, I'll keep you guys posted.
All the best,
